Pastor Berry Kalotiti Kalotrip and some of the men in the church cut an anniversary cake after the Sunday morning service. Pastor Berry gave a brief history of the beginning of the church in the village of Pango. There had been much persecution in the early days, homes burned and property damaged. Pastor Berry was in Bible School during this difficult time. He told how God clearly spoke to him to return home to take the Gospel to those who had not yet heard. He obeyed and the Lord intervened in the hearts of village leaders and the first Assembly of God church was dedicated on Sept. 11, 1983.
Last year a large church extension and renovation project was completed and dedicated on Sept.11th. This past weekend was also memorable as Pastor Berry celebrated his 51st birthday and asked the Lord for 10 more fruitful years of ministry.
